Really recommend British online food website

Can't resist recommending this website: www.britishonlinesupermarket.com

This is the third year I ordered a load of food for Christmas (I also order other favourites but just do it once a year). I find the prices reasonable and you only pay about 13 pounds for delivery of the whole box if it's under a certain weight. I live in France though, so it might be only good if you have an EU address, not sure. Just as an example, I got lovely tesco christmas crackers for something like 6 pounds. Also, mince pies, pudding, cheese crackers, brandy butter, even selection boxes. I also get packs of crisps, vinegar, mayonnaise etc! I know I can get some of it locally but since I'm getting the box anyway and the prices are good...

The service is really great. They ran out of a couple of items and emailed me different possibilities. Then I got it only a few days after ordering.

Re: Really recommend British online food website

Easier and probably cheaper to order from here:

http://www.britshop.ch/

Prices for stuff may be higher, but the postage at CHF8.90 only will balance that out. And orders over CHF150 are free postage anyway.

Re: Really recommend British online food website

Some good stuff here but other, cheaper options exist if you shop around e.g The cheddar kettle crisps are only 2 in Germany compared to CHF6.50. Lea & Perrins is also cheaper in Migros!
